New Delhi, July 8 (IANS) Women prefer work-related travel more than men, according to a study conducted by travel website, TripAdvisor.
The study said 94 percent women prefer work-related travel as compared men who score 87 percent.
The online survey was done across a cross section of around 2,500 travellers working in government, public sector, private companies, multinationals as well as self-employed.
